What is spousal fiduciary duty and how does it impact a divorce?

In California, marriage is more than just a legal union of two people. Marriage creates an equal partnership that, according to California public policy, obliges spouses to owe each other the same good faith and fair dealings they would give someone else in another fiduciary relationship.
